When it comes to food-centric festivals, the city of Addison certainly has plenty to boast of: There’s Oktoberfest, WorldFest and the perennial favorite Taste Addison. Fans of the latter may be slightly disappointed to hear that the annual event won’t be returning in 2014, but Addison is cooking up something totally new that promises to be a big draw for the Metroplex’s serious foodies.

Hungry Houstonians, you’re in luck — you have more dining choices than ever before, as there are many new restaurants worth a visit in Space City.
At the trendy West Ave. multi-use center in Upper Kirby, two new eateries are now open. Nara, a Korean/Japanese restaurant from chef Donald Chang that opened in the old Katsuya space, blends the flavors of Chang’s native country with his experience as a sushi chef in Houston. Over in the next building, Food Network Star Susie Jimenez has opened Trenza in the former Alto space upstairs from Del Frisco’s Grille. The name means “braid” and is a nod to the fusion food she offers: a blend of her native Latin cuisine with Indian and Asian twists.
